Highly resolved and beautifully composed, George Aristovoulou’s carefully segmented picture planes are filled with heavily rendered swatches of colour. The abstract fields of patterning seamlessly blend together, lending a dream-like quality to the meticulously constructed imagery.
In his current exhibition Fervent Repose, Aristovoulou creates fantastical, vibrant drawings that generate impact with their dense, smudged workings. His practice manifests a flourish of visual energies melded with a somewhat tranquil quality; a complex combination.
The works in this exhibition seem to capture the balance of the serene wildness seen and felt in nature. They demonstrate the palpable energy of the natural world – that feeling that leaves us indebted and in awe.
